First and foremost, the Phoenix is a Nebula class variant, as it has a really big honking sensor pod where the weapons pod usually is. Secondly, this ship is obviously balanced for the next generation, pre-sovereign era, as its armed with weaker shields, phasers, and photon torpedoes. The sounds were custom made by Cpt. 2Extreme, and the hardpoint tweaks were provided by Sci-Fi Dreamyards. Basically, its the nebula, except that the textures are all new, as pointed out in the readme, giving the ship a lighter look then the normal military looking nebula. Its based off the ship that captian Maxwell used to discover that the cardassians were supplying their colonists with weapons. Also there's custom tactics too, rarely have I seen people take time to fill these out. I do have some grips though, although they're mostly textural. Some of the textures, particularily around the warp nacelles, look sloppy, blocky, and the ships standout addition, the sensor pod, is almost completely devoid of any detail, making even look alien on the ship it belongs. Other then that, it makes a worthy variant, those who are into class variants should pick this one up.
